Researchers: Dr Katherine Gibney (Principal investigator)

Brief description Indigenous Australians in remote communities experience extremely high rates of infections such as skin sores. I will study the mobility and social interactions of Indigenous people in remote communities in the Northern Territory to better understand how infectious diseases spread throughout these communities. This information will be used in mathematical models to plan the most effective strategies to permanently reduce the burden of infectious diseases among Indigenous Australians.
